Rode about another 150 miles yesterday, and am still very happy with the spring. Still feel the ride is almost as stock, but I am scraping on corners more, but that was expected when lowering the bike. Chris sent me the install instructions should be no problem for most, you will need a press of some sort to compress the spring to release the preload cylinder, but L&M has developed a tool to ease the install. I've got a set of the fork extensions on the way, hoping they add the look I want to the front end.

While everyone is anxiously awaiting the availability of this new lowering shock, I for one am not convinced this is a way to go.
Honda engineered the bike this way, I think I would rather change the fender to correct the looks than change the suspension and ride..
My 2 cents...

You guy's enjoy this mod, I for one am not interested in it..

People lower their cars everyday it only makes them handle better because of a lower center of gravity albeit this is a chopper style motorcycle, BUT the factories HAVE to make cars/bikes/trucks comfy for ALL road conditions for ALL over the world. I for one have had lowered cars a long time and known people that had lowered vehicles for long periods of time and have had no problems. The lowering kit will be fine as long as your careful going over high spots such as tall speed bumps.

Cars are one thing, this is the only suspension for the rear of the bike.
However you justify it..
Like people putting large wheels pimping their ride with 1 inch of rubber between the wheel and the rim.. Rides like a brick and feel every dip in the road.. :confused:

If you want to ride a couch you couldve gotten a goldwing!!, jus sayin.....how many choppers do you see with a huge ass gap between the tire and the fender?...1 and that's the fury, now thanks to low & mean we don't have look at the hideous gap anymore. This should be the first mod done to the fury, well, besides the exhaust IMO.

The only acceptable option I see thus far is the Sumo kit, which can be done without the 250 tire. The metal frame support for the stock fender has to go in order to install a fender lower to the wheel. A lot of people are not comfortable cutting on the bike. Therefore the only other option so far is L&M.

Pictures are now in the "April Fury of the Month" thread.

The spring kit is just the spring and a tool for taking your shock apart you will need a press to do this. Or take it to a shop that has one.

Eventually some one may come out with other options, I have lowered Progressive springs on my VTX, as do many X riders. As a matter of fact I emailed Progressive to see if they were working on a shock for the Fury, as they do so many other bikes, they never answered my emails. Honda engineers the bikes for the safest way for an average person (size, weight etc) they new that it was going to be ridden by 110 lb women and 250 lb men, the can't fit the bike to everyone, and I am tailoring my bike to me, just as I did on my other bikes
